I realy like the idea of gamification and looking on other continents is 
very interesting :)

But (that might be what Frederik already said), remember that the rest 
of the community outside the US is quit unfamilar with TIGER import 
issues in detail.
For example, I tried to fix a bug, but it turned out, that the road 
didn't match the BING imagery. So what to do? Is BING or TIGER wrong?

So my idea is, just to create a short gallery with common TIGER 
problems, to help strangers to repair this part of our dataset :)
